Twinnings are a community (peer to peer) tool that enables exchange of knowledge on a particular topic by bringing together experienced players willing to pass on their experience to less experienced ones.
Participation in this request for twinning proposals is open on equal terms to public and private procurers, or groups of procuring organisations, operational in the provisioning of Health and social care established in a Member State of the European Union (or its Horizon-associated countries). This means that the Call for Twinnings is open for submissions from organizations that provide health or social care, and not open to solution providers.
Before submitting a proposal to the Procure4Health Twinnings call, applicants must make up a twinning partnership. To facilitate the identification of possible twinning partners, the Procure4Health online community platform, offers a tool for matchmaking.
An organisation may participate in more than one twinning, as long as the twinning activities are clearly different from each other.
All documents you are requested to submit for applying to the Call for Twinnings can be downloaded from this site (see above) as well as from the Proure4Health community platform.
For technical support on access, navigating and using the platform, please contact HCWH at email@example.com.
Yes. In Procure4Health and as stated in the request for proposals, we consider both one-directional (Originator – Adopter) and bi-directional Twinnings, in the latter for partners to provide complementary knowledge and capacity for both partners to build relevant and applicable capacity. In summary, the consortia setup is flexible and more intending to build relevant capacity at one or more organisations, than being limited to very strictly defined relationships.
Yes. There are no restrictions on participants countries, they can be from the same or from different countries.
The only document that requires a signature is the “Twinning Call Admin Section – Annex 1”.

There are not state a minimum duration of the Twinnings partnership. 6 months is the recommended (maximum) duration for the Twinnings activities. The period can be extended under certain circumstances.
Eligible organizations are highly dependent on how they are defined in the local/national context. They need to be procurers with an operational arm in health or social care provisioning.
Eligible costs are any cost related to the implementation of theTwinnings activities, being also (likely) direct costs such as travel for joint workshops/knowledge exchange.
It is expected that funded activities are not only staff but also costs resulting from joint activities, such as (for instance) travel or booking of facilities.
We recommend you register for the Procure4Health online community platform and find the matchmaking functionality within, for seeking partners for your Twinning. These can be national or international.
